Frequently Asked Questions
How do I calculate my macros for a keto diet?
You can calculate your macros by determining your daily caloric needs and then allocating a specific percentage of calories to carbs, fats, and proteins based on your keto goals.
Is quinoa allowed on a keto diet?
Quinoa is relatively high in carbs, so it's not commonly included in a keto diet. Opt for lower-carb grains like cauliflower rice or shirataki noodles.
How does the keto diet affect cholesterol levels?
For many people, the keto diet can improve cholesterol profiles by increasing HDL ('good') cholesterol and decreasing triglycerides. However, individual responses may vary.
Are there vegetarian or vegan keto options?
Yes, you can follow a vegetarian or vegan keto diet by including plant-based sources of protein like tofu, tempeh, and seitan, along with non-starchy vegetables and healthy fats.
What is the 'fat-adapted' state on a keto diet?
Being fat-adapted means your body has fully transitioned to using fat as its primary source of energy. It can take several weeks for this metabolic shift to occur on a keto diet.
